Middle Person Macon

it’s a shame how some employees have to struggle to make sure they can make it to work, she has no clue because rules doesn’t apply. Again misses a day and is unaccounted for again. She must be special.

New Years

Is New Year’s Day still a paid holiday? It’s posted in our break room that it is, but my managers have told me that it is not. Just genuinely curious if this has changed. As a full time employee, I don’t mind the extra pay, but I felt like last year... —  read more 

Hours cut after holidays

Schedules just went up and it looks like my stores hours are getting cut after Christmas. Even department heads are getting lowered to 28-32 hours. Thought we would have a little while long before that would happen. Anyone else experiencing this?

We are asked why we still remain

I know many out there will not appreciate what I’m about to say but here goes. There are hundreds of employees who remain with Bass not because we love it or even like it here - but because it’s the way to pay the bills. I remember the difficulty I... —  read more

Who is prepared for it?

Anyone feel their store is not prepared to handle the onslaught of customers when Black Friday sales open? In the past we have always tried to prepare for it - but we always fall short. We either don’t have enough employees on shift - or we run out... —  read more

How are your sales?

Sometimes I have to wonder why are we even open. I'm not complaining - I still have a job that's giving me some measure of security as I look for something else. But even I can see that the numbers don't justify keeping us in business. Are others in... —  read more 


Is it me, or does Bass Pro have a problem with their Ads ? I have worked here for a little over a year now, and it seems we never have enough ad goods, and sometimes don't get them at all. We usually run out of product in the first day or so, but... —  read more
